Nairametrics brings to you a compilation of reactions by Analysts and Stock Brokerage firms on the new merger agreement.





  1. In Nigeria, deceit is the tool that Our political, spiritual , and business Leaders are using to lead us; the two parties earlier denied the news. There is possibility that toxic asset of Diamond Bank would contaminate Merged asset. NBV of Diamond Bank as at 30/09/2018 was NGN 9.57 but it traded at NGN0.87 on 13/12/2018; there are many factors that could lead to such wide gap, We should not be oblivious of the huge write-off that followed some previous merger and acquisition.
